Yo-Zuri Super shrimp hunter jig!

It is a prawn imitation jig like no other you have ever seen. It has feathers for feet that walk(due to water surface drag) just like the legs of a real prawn and comes in colours that youve never seen before, such as brown. These things are so lifelike!

Hi adam,

I saw a few of these last night when i visited compleat angler in dandenong. They charge about $25-27 each! arghhh. But yes they do look nice and the packaging is pretty good.

I noticed that the range of jigs available at dandenong has expanded quite a bit. They had 5 or 6 brands of jigs and you could even buy spare hooks for jigs. But the spare rings of hooks were $2 each which i think is too expensive.

Glen :angry: :P

SA - the land of the bigger fish. The fish on the east, measure the least, but if you head west, you'll be bringing in the best!!

Hi Adam,

I bought some black magic hooks. They were $6 for a box of 30 hooks. I also got some fly-tying materials which was about 25% off i think. I used to be very keen of fly fishing but i don't go much these days.

I have enough squid jigs to last me a few years so i didn't buy any. i rarely lose jigs because i guess i fish with slow sinking jigs. plus i often fish the jigs under floats. Also i can go snorkelling in summer and get a few free jigs! :angry:

i fish with a mate who uses those fancy jigs, I use the $5.oo specials, His $25 jigs look the part, but we catch about the same amount of squid. we fish side by side quite often and usually end up about 50 /50.I think the $25 jigs would last a lot longer than the $5 ones, but would hurt a bit more when you loose 1.

i dont think 26 dollars is worth it when i started fishing for squid i caught all my squid on jigs from kmart .the only reason i changed because the better made jigs are now on sale frequently .so i buy a few ,now my mates think i have shares in atackle shop

I once bought a non-Yo Zuri squid jig. i repented after the shank simply fell out for no apparent reason. I lost a nice flounder cos of that (Yes, it attack my jig in plain view) :)

Buy a crap $5 jig, you can laugh all you want at the supposedly dumbass people who forked out more money, until it falls apart on you. I have hooked some truely monsterous squid on my old yozuri which I am certain would have pulled the barb shank out of a crap $5 model.

a 5 dollar jig that lasts 2 years is well worth it when rocks and huge cuttlefish eat chaep as well as expensive jigs. :cry:

From my own experience (from shore, for bait) it really depends on where you're jigging. At some of the standard sydney harbour spots a good jig makes all the difference. There's a lot of timid squid and often cheaper jigs are no use out there at all - squid are just not interested.

That said, in areas outside of sydney (presumably less jigged) jigging is just as good with $5 jigs as they are with the YoZuris.

Although I'm sure times/tides have been discussed (and debated) many times, I think the quality (and action) of the jig becomes a greater requirement if you are fishing outside optimal conditions.

i think bat man is right. in busy areas squid are fussier. that is when the jig is more important. :beer

Ha bought myself a yo zuri Shrimp Hunter Today..... pink and yellow, size 3.0 perfect for rabid bay area the sales dude told me 3.5 wasa good all round jig, but he said that the 3.0 were good for down that way... something interesting though, one of the barbs sticks straight out horizontally to the jig like it hasnt been bent up..... is this a fault in my $20 jig or a deliberate reveloutionary technique??? :wh :au:

Remember you cant keep all of the squid happy all of the time, only some of the squid some of the time...
